Since when have fruit bats started burglarising top secret biological weapons establishments and should we be worried by the fruit bat threat?
That is the animal fruit bat not the former CTUSM member.
"Somehow got loose" dies not immediately infer a group of noctillionine Artful Dodgers legging around Central Africa.
There's lots of ways something can escape from a lab or get dumped. It's not beyond the realms of possibility is all I'm saying.
Well it is, but nevermind.
Fruit bats have probably been infected by Ebola for millenia.
They have probably passed it on to man via bush meat for millenia as well in small numbers.
It is highly infectious only when in the terminal stages and few people would want to be around someone in the terminal stages of Ebola.
It is only with the rise in bush meat use due to war, famine and over population in certain parts of West Africa that it has finally become an epidemic rather than an unreported death here and there every few weeks.
